Journey's End"

Journey's End"

The Drematic Club has selected R. C. Sherriff's famous play, "Journey's End." for its first production in the Winter Term. The Committee recived numerous quests from students that the Club should present some play other than comedy or farce, and in acceding to those requests, committee feels certain that its decision will be appreciated by a large majority of students.

Although "Journey's End" has not been staged in Wellington for many years, little need be said about the play itself. It is a gripping drama of the front-line tenches, which shows the effect of the War on a small group of officers and their individual reactions to the strain placed upon them. It must not be thought that the play is entirely devoid of humour: on the contrary the author has lessened the tense atmoshphere of the play with brilliant comic relief. He has skilfully portrayed and distinguished all his characters to remarkabe effect. A strong cast has been rehearsing steadily during the vacation, and the club feels confident that it will do full justice to this great play.

"Journey's End" will be presented in the College Gymnasium on Thursday and Friday, 11th and 12th June. Students' Night will be Thursday, when supper and dance will follow the production. The play will also be presented on Saturday for members of the R.S.A.

The success of a publication is directly proportional to the size of its wastepaper basked.
